Marienstift Hospital

One of the first medical institutions in Israel and among the first of its kind in the world, the Marienstift Children’s Hospital was founded in the late 1870’s by German physician and pediatric surgeon, Dr. Max Sandreczky. Until the mid 19th century, there had not been a single resident physician in the Holy Land. However, by the 1st World War, several hospitals were already established in Jerusalem. The standards of medical practice in the Marienstift hospital not only compared favorably with those in Western Europe, but in certain aspects they were more advanced. In addition to the treatment of a variety of diseases common at the time such as malaria, trachoma, leprosy and rheumatic fever, Dr. Sandreczky also considered the psychological aspects of his young patients, providing them with toys and occupational therapy. He also instituted rooming-in for mothers. The landmark building has been renovated and restored. It currently houses an eye clinic and includes an historic display of its original function as the first children's hospital in the Middle East.
